Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

That their parents' divorce adds to the burden of children's growing up is amply documented by Garrity and Baris, child psychologists in Denver who specialize in treating partners of acrimoniously failed marriages. Their book is designed to help parents and the professionals who work with them arrive at solutions to stressful situations that will enable the children of divorce to grow into emotionally healthy adults. Interparental conflict affects children at all ages, but, the authors contend, children under five are especially vulnerable, while older children more often join in the conflict by taking sides. The authors' remediation model for containing, regulating and resolving anger is presented for use by attorneys, mental health professionals and divorced parents to shape an effective co-parenting plan that does not make pawns of children.

From Library Journal

Although there have been other recent books on coparenting after divorce (e.g., Melinda Blau's Families Apart, LJ 1/94), Garrity and Baris focus primarily on situations where open conflict between parents continues years after a separation. Following opening chapters on the negative aspects of such conflict, the authors demonstrate how a parenting plan geared toward lowering the conflict level can help. This is realized primarily through the use of a "parenting coordinator," who is either hired by the parents or mandated by the courts. Two chapters focus on parental alienation, which occurs when one parent attempts to alienate children from the other. Although the majority of divorcing parents are not going to want a coordinator, the ideas in this book may be useful in severe cases. Recommended for large academic and public libraries.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Layperson and Parent's Review Dec 2 2007
By C. M. Standley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I am a parent who shares custody with a long and difficult history. This book has been instrumental in providing me with deep insights into how my reactions and behaviors are affecting my child, and what I can do to help. Its is not a self-help book, but the information in it is instructive to help, particularly for the child being parented. I am quite appreciative of the information and how it was presented. It also gave me valuable perspective into the child custody evaluation process and the particular evaluator engaged for our matter. Its nothing a parent either needs or wants experinece with personally. I wish I had read it or been referred to it before/while participating in our evaluaiton a few years ago - My kid would have benefitted most.

5.0 out of 5 stars MUST READ Oct. 6 2013
By Jamie Hodges - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm six years divorced, being taken back to court for a custody battle by an ex-spouse who suddenly has decided he wants to be a father.

This book was recommended by children's counselor and I devoured it. Really puts you on the side of the kids. Takes you out of the "he said she said" and battle against your ex and truly boils it down to what matters - the children.

Some parts were a little hard to read because initially it paints a doomsday picture of children and divorce, but keep reading, and you'll be glad you did. There is a light at the end of the tunnel, there are healthy ways to cope, and children need to protected at all costs. Now, if I can just get my ex to read this...

I read this book to get background for a paper I wrote at school. It was very helpful explaining the effects of divorce on the family's children.

i bought this when my wife left after an affair. it really puts things in perspective and keeps you focused on your kids; instead of hating on your ex. ironically i skipped all the sections on parent coordinator and my custody fight is finally over after two years and we have a parent coordinator. i would recommend that men dont fight the coordinator as hard as i did. with all the game playing its good to have someone recording them.
